The Ritz Carlton on St. Thomas is a fabulous place to stay.

Ritz Carlton--St Thomas

Actually, everything was pretty amazing. The staff was great. Juan, the concierge, went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable with his fabulous service. I would only suggest some evening entertainment would be a welcome addition: maybe local musicians at one of the bars, etc. There is a ton to do during the day but the evenings are too quiet.

Too expensive for basically being NOT OPEN!
TravellingGirl55, Winston Salem, NC

They are still charging Ritz prices for basically a place to crash. We paid $369/night before tax. We got to the hotel and wandered around with our luggage for like 10 minutes because the signs to find check in were weird and confusing. Check-in was pleasant and the receptionist was friendly and fast. They called the golf cart to take us/luggage to our room Room was nice inside with comfy beds and super nice bathroom. We had an oceanview with balcony and the views were nice. This is where the GOOD ends. BAD: *AC in room barely worked. Would never get below 75 even though we set it low. *Thin rooms! We heard the construction and people and barely slept. *Construction started at 6AM- oi! *NO amenities- no where on beach/pool to get a drink *Had to get our own towels from behind the area and many times there were NONE *Beach- had to drag our own (HEAVY!) chairs down every day! *Beach- Bobcat was cleaning up seaweed in front of us daily- ugh! *Had to leave every day for lunch and dinner- $$$$$ The worse for us is the first night we were there- I have never felt so UNSAFE in my entire travels (and I travel a ton!) The man next to us in our CONNECTING room was beating the crap out of his wife. Like violent and yelling and breaking stuff and she was screaming he was trying to kill her! We were SO scared and I called security and they took 45 MINUTES to come! I had to prop chairs under the doors handles because we were afraid he would come attack us since we were the only people there and he had to know it was us who called. Overall, the money for what you get was NOT good. They should not be charging these prices for basically no amenities

View from the room was okay

Room was okay view not that great for how many people were staying at the hotel. I am a platinum member and was not given an option for a room upgrade or to a better view room. Place was under construction and more workers then guests. Breakfast buffet was a joke, self serve everything,bacon and sausage was sitting in grease eggs were sitting in water bottom of the tray. potatoes and french toast were cold along with the eggs and sausage and bacon. You had a 8 oz fruit cup covered with plastic.should I go on. And the worst part was when the waitress finally did come over it was to give us our bill at $40.00 per person. WHAT A RIP OFF AND THEN TO HAVE TO TIP 18 PERCENT BECAUSE THERE WERE 4 PEOPLE AT THE TABLE.

This review was supposed to be entitled, Don’t Come They aren’t Ready. And in some ways they aren’t. There are three uninhabitable buildings, one restaurant, no concierge, more workmen than employees but...the employees are amazing. Our first room was not great, the “ocean view” wasn’t, the bathroom door didn’t really close. But the second room was great. Staff moved our stuff and even found the food we had in the fridge we had forgotten. Charles, a bartender, is engaging and makes a superb rum punch. (It’s not on the menu, ask him for his drink) Bottom line, I probably would not return, but because it just wasn’t my type of resort, fully functioning or not. Should you come? Have you rented a car? Are you trapped here or just using this as a base? This place is barebones and it is an active construction site, but the staff is fantastic and the view, once you get it, is beautiful. Only you know what amenities you want. In our time here it seems that every place on the island is recovering.

Warning - The hotel is under total renovation - some rooms are open during the construction. Construction lasts from 6:00 am - 6:00 pm - everyday!!!!! There is no elevator - lots and lots of stairs. Not good with luggage and no help and the heat. The rooms are comfortable though - except for bug and refrigerator freezing all the food.
